Top Ten Pokemon Shippings

The Top Ten

Ash and Serena

Nowadays we see people sharing their opinions here and especially screaming out, that Ash and Serena are meant to be for one another. And I personally think this is true. Like, hello! It's rather special don't you think, that really, after such a long time from meeting in childhood, Serena still remembered Ash and had feelings for him? Don't comment badly on this - it's true because after that incident Serena never saw Ash again, or knew his name, until she was a teenager and saw him in the middle of a Pokemon battle. I kinda liked the idea of downright, sharp-tongued Iris to be with solid, hard-working Ash, because it's rather funny, but honestly I think Ash and Serena are better together. And really, Ash only argued with her once, and Serena is always kind and helpful to him. Iris is really funny with Ash, in my opinion, but she's too hard with Ash and argues with him. Dawn? Oh, she's completely marvellous and is like Ash's female clone but really she's a bit hardheaded and rather ...more

Oh my moons, I cannot tell you how much I love this ship. It has been confirmed that Serena did in fact kiss Ash on the lips, and that she will be in a relationship later on in the series. I mean, when the creators of Pokemon themselves ship them, you know it's bound to happen. Also, she is the first Pokegirl to have known him before the series timeline, and the first to have an explicit crush on him. Serena was also invited to come along with Ash, instead of asking to. No other girl has been as close to Ash as Serena, and face it, they are adorable together.

Serena was the only person to actually go on a journey because of Ash whilst the other poke girls have made up lame excuses.

Because they are so cute together and ash cares about serena more than any poke girl

Ash and Misty

This ship was by far the most mutual. Yes it was partly due to 4kids but still.

Yes Misty would rag on or hit Ash. But a lot of those times Ash had it coming by having a case of "Foot In Mouth" syndrome, and Misty went on the defensive. At the same time she has done it to Brock over supporting Ash when Brock fawned over Jeanette. Ash and Misty got along great when they would not push each other's buttons. I've seen people say Misty and Iris were very similar but Misty did not relish in bashing on Ash if Ash did not deserve it. Iris did it just for kicks.

The two also had the most reactions when the other one was flirted with. Misty would get jealous when girls flirted with Ash, and vice versa when guys flirted with Misty. That's a detail that has not been seen much with other females.

Whenever something would happen to one of them the other expressed a lot of concern, sometimes not even mentioning another character who was in the same peril.

Even ...more

Sure, they fought a lot, but they never meant it in a harmful way to each other. It was always in a childish and joking way and was cute and fun to watch. They clearly care for each other MORE THAN JUST FRIENDS. Ash has never shown those feelings towards any other girl. They are just meant to be...As for Serena, it's kind of ridiculous that she likes Ash after all these years. I mean in reality, that would just be seen as clingy and pretty weird...

The only person who Ash actually likes or has liked is Misty. Ash just never acted attracted towards anyone else. Sure, it may be hidden, but there are many moments low-key showing they like each other. All the other Ash related ones are one sided, or even no sided. They also have the most comparable personalities, both are rash, somewhat mean to each other, but both secretly care about one another a lot, and both actually train Pokemon. The other girls are either too girly, think they are better than anyone, or are just his friend.

So basically I was pretty 8 when I started shipping them without even knowing it states in may hear ever even time pass and they might forget her but I won't.
Misty is really special for ash you kno2 she was his first couch she was the first to help him(lending him her bike) she was there when he caught his first Pokemon(not pikachu it was given by prof. Oak) with battle his catarpe and the moment she hates bugs and he was like I caught my first pokemon how he danced with her that time. we always misty get jealous when ever girls get close to ash. But even ash got jealous for misty I don't remember his name but he was a gymleader and she even has a songs her goodbye song and if any one had heard misty's song it too touching. So it really stays in my heart the way he is dense and the way she is sensitive he is childish and she is mature and there fights it all so adorable I really cried when she and Brock had a goodbye even ash cried. So all this things 8 guess that's why I love ...more

May and Drew

Oh may and drew it just so obvious man we have see many momMets together and to be honest I love drew he is just so hero type you know he is a hero material and what to talk about our sweet little may She clearly has a crush on him and no doubt that even he has a crush on her.

...I don't have anything to say I extremely adore this shipping I believe it can become canon because Drew gives May roses and roses are supposed to be love I know it's supposed to be for beautyfly but in the end it's actually for May

This is one of the few ships I see actually becoming canon. They clearly like each other, they just need to grow up.

I've seen almost every episode of Pokemon and I have to say that these two have the most chemistry, while they have their fights occasionally they still look out for each other and in my opinion come the closest to being canon from a lot of the popular ships

Ash and Dawn

The show has made it obvious that Dawn won't end up with Paul, Kenny, or Conway. As for her relationship with Ash, they couldn't be more compatible. They're two very outgoing, determined people who stop at nothing to achieve their goals. Their friendship actually helped each other, I can only imagine how they'd be as a couple. Dawn's also the only companion who was treated similarly to Ash by the writers. It was Ash and Dawn's story, not just "Ash and his friends".

Ash and dawn are just made for each other... Their friendship is so real... And dawn had her own goals in life rather than just travelling with ash... Ash has learnt so much with dawn... Those two are just the perfect couple... Dawn is the only female character in the pokemon series who has a central character just like ash... This clearly shows how important dawn was for ash... Also he has saved dawn so many times that one can not even count. Their chemistry is the thing which I loved the most about the diamond and pearl season... Also we can see that whenever Dawn has an option to chose between Ash and any other boy, she has always chosen Ash... She is just like Ash and shares an informal relationship with her. Dawn's piplup's reference shows that how important dawn is for him... And since they are just like each other the understand each other the most... Even Cynthia, the sinnoh champ knows that how important they are for each other... I just want this ship to be fixed permanently ...more

I love Ash and Dawn together! They are so cute together! They even had their own song! They should be together forever and ever! I don't know why people keep saying Ash and Dawn are more like siblings than lovers?! I personally think that Ash and Dawn is one true pairing and to be together! I don't know why others like and prefer Ash and Serena together. Ash and Serena's shipping is just too boring for me. I would always ship Ash and Dawn together even if nobody liked it! Ash and Dawn should be together in end instead of Ash and Serena be together. Ash and Dawn is my otp! Ash and Dawn together for the win!

Hey to all you pearlshippers and the amourshippers out there. I totally get it why you amourshippers support ash x Serena over pearlshipping. However I would like to point out something to you amourshippers,any other haters of pearlshipping or even to the people who really like Serena x ash but wouldn't mind if dawn ends up with ash. Look I totally get it why you support your ship , but think about it for a second. Specially the amourshippers. Serena had a crush on ash , and that's fine, but did ash have one?. Now, also to you people who argue that Serena totally went with ash just to be with him and support. Didn't dawn do the same? I mean , Dawn's dream isto become top coordinator like her mother and so she could have clearly started preparing for the next grand festival, right?. However she did prioritise Ash's battle at the sinnoh league. She had no bounds and she could have clearly went with Kenny or Zoey , when she got the offer, but she didn't. In every discussion, even if it ...more

Jessie and James

I don't get why they're not more popular, they're the ones with the most chemistry and they really care about each other. Rocketshipping is so painfully underrated. But I think I know why and that's because the new audience of each generations are mainly children and they are less likely to understand grown up characters. I've shipped these two since the beginning and my friends didn't get it back then, when they got older they understood what I meant.

Most likely ship there is tbh. Gosh they're already canon in a manga. Although the newest seasons with their less Team Rocket-centric dynamic isn't helping at all.

They are just hilarious and amazing together. There would be no Pokemon without Team Rocket :)

This makes sense because they have been together since the 1990s

Ash and May

While I may not ship this anymore (I'm an amourshipper now) I still think this would have been a great pairing

I do not know why I like this couple so much but it is my favorite. I like Ash and Serena too but I do not know the way Ash takes care of May is so sweet and he saved her a lot of times. Best couple in my opinion.

Why is this shipping always so overlooked? I mean they have a lot in common and even their Pokemon are relatively the same. They shared great chemistry and she's hot.

I like this shipping and actually, so does Max. He likes seeing May and Ash together. When I first saw May I thought she was Ash's crush (sorry if this sounds stupid).

Misty and Tracey

What? Seriously? Tracey looks good with Daisy and Ash with Misty.

Well wenever ash ask oak very is tracy he just gives back the same answer-He went to visit misty and Pokemon special series episode did show them as a good pair

Misty seems way more tolerable with Tracey than she ever was with Ash and seems to like to hangout with him as seen in the Chronicles and the last episode of BW. Plus he gave her a Azurill and helps her out like when she needed more badges. So I can see a healthy relationship starting here

I think there may be something between these two they got along well

Calem and Shauna

So underrated but so adorable

Yas! I love this shipping

I like this ship it is cute

It's down right canon.

Dawn and Kenny

But in the anime dawn rejects kenny

Kenny got friendzoned

I love this shipping! But really I don't get why people hate it so much though, look at them they grew up together and at one point dawn said that Kenny looked handsome when he beats ash! It's so romantic

Dawn just likes kenny. Just as a good friend

Brock and Lucy

Both really liked each other but couldn't get together

#Just give brock a girlfriend.


The Contenders

Elio/Sun and Lillie

Probably one of my favorites such an underrated ship needs more attention in the fanbase

This is my OTP 😍 and, in all honesty, Shauna and Calem was my first ship and then I played Pokémon Moon and immediately knew after beating the game that this was my OTP. There is also more evidence that Lillie has a crush on Elio/Sun/Male MC than Selene/Moon/Female MC, so I don't know why (and how) this ship is overshadowed by FMC/Lillie. It's a brilliant ship that is underrated.

Clemont and Korrina

Voting to comment.
1. Age gap: Clemont's about 13 and Korrina is somewhere between the ages of 18 and 22.
2. No signs of a romantic relationship: Just because Korrina told Clemont about her past doesn't mean a romantic relationship,
3. Clemont is too awesome to have a girlfriend,

That one episode where Korrina tells Clemont about her past made me really like this pair

Korrina is just taller than Clemont I sure they're the same age

Their the same age dumbass korrina isn't anywhere near 18

Pikachu and Buneary

Worst Ship

First of all Buneary has a crush on Pikachu and pikachu doesn't have a crush on Buneary

Stupid ship, you name it


I guess its one sided

This is a really good ship

Black and White

Seriously, the hints, the interactions, the blushing, THE REUNION?! A "platonic boss-employee relationship" my ass. Seriously, they are already canon, they are just not aware of it.

They are so nice

I love this ship so much such nostalgia

bruh opposites check uh do I need to say more

Cilan and Iris

Hey I'm a WhishfulShipper, but Ash and Iris look good together, Cilan and Iris are better off together though.

Cilan is too awesome to have a girlfriend. Need I say more? Also, 5 year age gap.

Cute ship in my opinion. Too bad it doesn't get much support

This is good. Its nice and sweet they protect each other from their own fears.

Bonnie and Max

Bonnie and Max would be so cute together :3 I have always thought about them being together

Well. I saw a picture that Bonnie kissed Max and good they're the youngest couple I seen yet. Yep! I like this they are so cute together!

They look cute together. Best youngest couple in the series

I like this one! It's so cute! They ate so perfect!

Ash and Angie

Oh I love this ship! I can't believe how low it is!

Ash basically said he'd die for her! They bettered each other!

Not sure if I ship this

Underrated OTP

Brendan and May

If you played Pokemon oras you should know this is almost canon.

One of the best shippings in the games and better than anything in the anime

This at least deserves to be in the first page

Best shipping in the manga

Go and Koharu
Cheren and Bianca

They are just so cute together and they could balance each other out well



Seriously, Dualrivalshipping is the cutest ever. Just cute, cute, cute.

Conway and Dawn

I think that when Conway matures and grows out of his "creepy" tactics (probably caused by social awkwardness, change my mind), I feel they could become very good friends, and then, who knows? Fall in love.

Ha! I completely forgot about Conway! I should've put this on the list originally haha.

Conway: I approve of this

They worked so well together in the Tag Battle contest <3

Victor and Gloria
Clemont and Serena

Nah, Clemont deserves better. I don't really like Serena.

Hate the ship with passion. A rival to Ash and Serena, I mean I am unsure if Ash had feelings for Serena but serena had feeling for Ash, why would she turn around to Clemont and be like, I never paided you any interest, what to get together? Serena doesn't like Clemont, she thinks he is nerdy and awarkard. And Clemont thinks Serena is too Girly. E.C.T. And I 100% ship Clemont with Lilia ( A keeper for Keeps.) Girl.

This is garbage. I literally got sick from this. Serena has to be with Ash

Better than Ash x Serena that's for sure

Calem and Serena

They look cute together, and they're NOT an anime ship like almost every other ship on this list. And Calem is much better than Ash.

How could you not love this ship is better than amour

People say he/she friend-zoned you I didn't see that at least with Serena she seemed real interested in Calem

They look so ' cute together it just wants to make me cry because it's not canon.

Froakie and Fennekin

Aghh, this is just so freaking adorable! Ash's Greninja and Serena's Braixen are just-- Man, I love this ship.

Really cute how froakie cleaned fennikin's tail when he saw her upset and blushed when she thanked him.

They are so adorable together! And anyone who voted for Ash and Serena have to on this one, since these are their Pokemon C:

So cute! its basically ash and serena - pokemon form!
